The reigning Champions Atletico Madrid will travel to Bilbao this weekend, as it looks to confirm its spot for the next year’s Champions League.
Athletic Club themselves are locked in a battle to secure a European finish. With 48 points, Athletic Club trails 6th placed Real Sociedad by 7 points. With 5 more games to go before the season ends, the club’s fans will be hoping that their team collects maximum points from the upcoming games, to bolster its top 6 chances. Bilbao played against Cadiz last weekend and produced an engaging game of football.
The visitors were ahead by 3-0 at half-time and looked poised for a comfortable win. Cadiz made a strong comeback to score 2 goals in the second half. But Bilbao managed to hold its nerves, and picked up 3 crucial points. Most football betting sites are predicting an equally engaging game for this weekend too.
After being knocked out of the Champions League by Manchester City, Atletico now has just the domestic league to focus on but are unlikely to defend the title. Real Madrid has been unstoppable this season, and is most likely to snatch the cup from their neighbors. Atletico has managed to win just one of its last 3 top-flight games, and will travel to Bilbao on the back of a disappointing goalless draw against Granada.
With 61 points, Madrid is in the 4th place and trails both, Barcelona and Sevilla by 2 points. A win in this match will help it strengthen its chances for a second-place finish.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Athletic Bilbao vs Atletico Madrid La Liga 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the San Mames Barria Stadium, Bilbao, on 30th April 2022.
With both the teams pretty evenly matched on paper and in form, we are likely to have a closely fought contest on our hands this weekend. The hosts are likely to play without Oihan Sancet, Inigo Lekue, and Asier Villalibre, all of whom are nursing injuries. Mikel Vesga will be serving a suspension in this game.
Diego Simeone will be happy to welcome back Kondogbia and Filipe, who are available for selection after serving suspensions, however, Thomas Lemar, Hector Herrera and Joao Felix might not take the trip due to fitness issues.
Bet on a draw.
4 of the last 6 head to head meetings in the top flight have produced less than 2.5 goals at full time. Each of the last 2 away games for Madrid, and 4 of the last 6 top flight games for Bilbao too have produced a similar result. We expect this to be a low scoring game.
4 of the last 5 games involving Athletic Club, and 4 of the last 7 games for Madrid have seen goals netted on both the sides. Also, 4 of the last 5 matches between the two teams across competitions have seen both sides score atleast once, adding weight to our reccomendation.
